Featured Item: Technographic Coloring Book

This great coloring book from Totemic was even nicer than I could have imagined. John Wik, the creator of the coloring book, known as Totemic on etsy, is truly amazing. I am flabbergasted by his lovely pendants and caged dice earrings, and his art is just awesome. Something you need to know about me- I adore coloring. I adore coloring books- but I want something grown up! I don't want to go buy one of those silly winnie the pooh coloring books at the dollar store! I want something that's fun to color and that doesn't make me feel like a 5 year old. Up till now, I've been relying on coloring books from Dover Publishing to fill my deep desire for coloring books. When I saw Technographic, I couldn't resist. Of course, the price tag was a bit daunting for poor old me, so I put it on my favorites and waited until I had the money- then i snatched it up.

It arrived, and I attacked it with my father-in-law's colored pencils:

I'm loving it. This coloring book is simply amazing- the designs are all abstract, but very carefully made, and they are printed on super high-quality cardstock, then spiral bound for a wonderful coloring experience. The service I got from John was phenomenal, and he sent me 4 artist trading cards with his "cloud" series on them. Sure, he has high-ticket items in his shop- but I can guarantee that everything in there is worth it. I certainly know that my coloring experience has been worth MORE than the money I paid for the coloring book, and if you like to color as much as I do, you'll feel the same way.

PS: The coloring book was a limited edition, and he's only got a few copies left, so better snatch them up before they are gone.

I love those dover books for coloring. I am as obsessive about coloring as it sounds like you are. I am going to put that on my favorites and hopefully I will be able to save up the money before they all sell out!

Thanks Bronwyn for the tip. I am going to wait and see for now. I put it back the way it was before I tried to add the "button" because it messed up the nav bar on my page , wierd !
You are very cool !

i purchased this book when it first came out. didn't know it was limited edition or i would have tried for two. i wish he would re-issue it or break it up into sets of smaller books and re-sale them. i have Dover books of many kinds and they are nice but John's are far better than any others so far. i have just ordered his "Deco Tech: Geometric book (actually two copies). Will keep my eye out for more. He has another one that I didn't come across until it was out of print. I will keep a look out in used bookstores and elsewhere to see if any come up. if anyone knows how to contact John Wik would you be so kind as to ask him to re-issue his book? Please!! Thanks!
